Aesop’s Beguiling Invitation

Aesop’s beguiling held her fast,

stopped evasiveness in her tracks,

from that moment

– moments melded into sanguine serendipity,

clarity, prosperity,

sighing relief in such opportunity,

shedding layers,

following signs,

every one of divine design

– then the dream dissolved.

Aesop’s invitation

but a momentary distraction,
